Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Although we did not rate this nursing home highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Inspection ratings are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this facility a middle of the pack grade in the area of short-term care, where it received a B-. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. One reason for this nursing home's strong score in this category is that it provides a substantially greater volume of physical therapist hours to its residents than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the majority of nursing homes in the nation in this area with 52.8 percent of its residents returning home. This is a better rate than most facilities.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Sadly, this facility received an F for its long-term care score. Facilities that do not score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 80.254776 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Unfortunately, this nursing home's hospitalization rate was also a cause for concern. We found that this place had 2.65 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an alarming rate.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last category we looked at is nursing. This nursing home received an abysmal grade of F in that category. We weighed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses spent with patients, in computing our score in this area. This particular nursing home offered just 2.8 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This statistic is significantly below average. On top of being below average in nursing hours per resident, this nursing home also had poor marks in the quality-based metrics we looked at in determining our nursing ratings. We looked at the percentage of patients sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers. This facility was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in both of these data points. This is likely a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are preventable with better nursing care. These metrics pulled down this nursing home's nursing rating quite a bit.
